Category: Teaser Thursday

Grab a current read, open to a random page (I will be switching by blindly flipping through the page and then stop when it feels right, and using a randomizer online), and pick 2 “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, write them down, pick a cover, and done.

I flipped through the book and landed on page 133.

The sound was loud and harsh. It broke the calm of the night sky, sending rooks circling into the air with terror.
His hounds went berserk, barking and biting each other’s tails. The call of the knight’s horn rang out over the valleys and mounds and tracks and moats of this land, shaking leaves from the trees and sending ripples through ponds.

I flipped through the book 3 times and stopped at page 125.

All variety of pants-pissing thoughts descended on me as I stared up at the fortress of trees marking the entrance to the forest. I remembered that we had no idea just how big the island was. It could be absolutely swarming with the undead or it could be some kind of killer bear sanctuary.
Carl’s knife was big but it wasn’t that big. There was a a bitter innuendo in there somewhere, but I was just too damn frightened to consider it.

I have to get out of here, Emily thought frantically. But the front door wasn’t safe –there was practically a parade of zombies marching down the street, and any one of them could catch her. Could transform her into –into– into–one of them.

I have an ebook copy (though I will be buying this one in physical form as well), and I used random.org to pick a number between 1 and 100 (%). It picked 34.

“Rose!” She grabbed my shoulders and planted a kiss on my cheek, suggesting friendship going way beyond our three interactions, two of which were on the phone. “I wasn’t expecting you tonight! Spying on your man? Holy shit, you look amazing.”

Teaser Thursday ~ Wish You Were Italian

I’m still smiling as I close out our conversation and crank up the music on my computer, halfheartedly sing-humming along to the songs I know and scrolling through the pictures I’ve taken so far this summer. I start at the beginning, my mouth watering at the rich texture of my first gelato. I’m transported back to the streets of Rome when I come to the picture of a quiet alley draped in ivy, then the Pantheon, and the Colosseum. I ache for that first day, everything about it.
And everyone…

I used random.org and it picked page 157.

“You looked pretty hip back then, Mr. Griswold,” James said.
Mr. Griswold chortled, and Emily relaxed a bit. He didn’t seem mad, at least.
“Can I see it?” Matthew asked. After looking at the photo, he exclaimed, “Dude! Your hair is curly! Is that a perm?”

I flipped through the book and asked my boyfriend to say stop. The page we ended up with was page 233.

Yoonie is at one of the sinks, brushing her teeth.
She spits. “Hey, you’re alive. How are you? We were all super-worried.”
“I feel like I had the black plague, though I’m way better, thanks. Listen, did Devon crash with you guys last night?”

I had my boyfriend pick out a page today. He picked page 167!

Now I’ll be Mills… MILLS THE SPILLS. It even rhymes! “Mills the Spills, Mills the Spills, with her dropped-chip-lunch coolness she kills.” I will be called this for ever. Even when I’m forty-three and living in…

This one is on my kindle, so I went to the view with the scrollbar, held the marker, did a swipe move, and let it go. It ended on page 185!

“Honestly… he’s boring. I know I kept saying it wasn’t about him being a prince… but that’s not true. If he’d just been any old hot guy, I probably would have lost interest after three weeks. Although he is a dynamite kisser, so maybe not.”
